In addition to my breakfast smoothie, I have a combination of nuts and seeds that keep my system happy. Going without this combination for several days in a row has proven to be a problem, so I try to avoid that. Also, the fruit smoothie leaves me a bit hungry, and this combination fills me up. Joel Fuhrman in his book Eat to Live says the most nutritious foods are fruit and vegetables, nuts, beans and seeds. I agree that per calorie, these are the most nutritious foods. They are full of vitamins, minerals, mono saturated fats, energy and fiber. So, I have a daily addition of crunchies, nuts and seeds, for lots of reasons, if you know what I mean.
Marlo, on the other hand, prefers a handful of almonds with his fruit smoothie and that works well for him. We all have differences and we each have to figure out what works best.
I have the fruit smoothie right after our morning run, and have the crunchies a little later, often in hand as I head out the door. Here’s the combination recipe.
Thank you for reading this. Ask me anything. I mean it, anything.
